In a recent development coming in, an ex-England captain and legend's son is set to make his U-19 Test debut for the national team. 

Michael Vaughan's son Archie Vaughan is in line to make his debut against Sri Lanka next week after having been named in the 14-man squad set to tour the Island nation. 

Vaughan isa top-order batter and can also bowl offspin. He signed his first professional contract with Somerset earlier this season, having been part of the their academy since 2020.

The squad also includes former England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff's son, Rocky Flintoff. 

Though Archie has yet to make his Somerset first-team debut, he made his mark last week with a knock of 85 from 83 balls during a match between Young Lions Invitational XI and the England U19 ODI squad, for whom Flintoff top-scored with 106.

England was reeling at 52-4 before Rocky took the crease. The 16-year-old cricketer then went to stich a crucial 81-run partnership with Charlie Allison in their chase of 288 and blasted eight boundaries and three sixes.
